Tilapia Corn Chowder

From: EatingWell

This light soup is a great way to slip fresh corn (and tilapia, of course!) into your late-summer menu. Make it a meal: Enjoy with a mixed green salad and oyster crackers.

Servings: 6 servings, about 1 1/4 cups each
Prep: 45 mins
Total: 45 mins

 by 2 people
2 ounces  bacon, (about 2 slices)
1 teaspoon  canola oil
1 stalk  celery, diced
1   leek , white part only, halved lengthwise, rinsed and thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
4 cups  reduced-sodium chicken broth
8 ounces  Yukon Gold potatoes, diced
2 cups  fresh corn kernels, (about 4 ears)
1 1/2 pounds  tilapia fillets, cut into bite-size pieces
1 teaspoon  finely chopped fresh thyme
1 cup  half-and-half
2 teaspoons  lemon juice
2 tablespoons  chopped fresh chives, (optional)
1. Chop bacon and cook in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
2. Add oil to the pan. Add celery, leek, salt and pepper and cook until the vegetables just begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add broth, potatoes and corn. Bring to a gentle simmer. Cook until the potatoes are just tender and the corn is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Stir in tilapia and thyme; return to a gentle simmer. Cook until the tilapia is cooked through, about 4 minutes more. Remove from the heat.
3. Stir in half-and-half, lemon juice and the reserved bacon. Garnish with chives, if using.

Was the soup supposed to come out so thin? I was expecting the starch from the potatoes to thicken it some. Other than consistency, this soup was satisfying and delicious.
